|Got a long way to go. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) got caught on camera making a racially insensitive remark about Native Americans in front of Indian-American supporters.|
It's a long way to next year's primaries and it already seems like its a wash for a congresswoman.
The Democratic congresswoman from California is under fire after she was caught on camera making an offensive remark towards Native Americans and thus pissed off Indian-Americans.
She is also running for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA).
Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) along with California's Secretary of State Kamala Harris have openly declared their intentions on running for the Democratic nomination.
Whomever wins this event will face the Republican nominee.
So far I call it "LIKELY DEMOCRAT" for the time being. California is a stronghold for Democrats.
But if you're a candidate running for higher office, you know that the cameras from your opponents and the junk food media will follow your every move.
Sanchez, a Latina should have known better.

I am going to his office, thinking that I am going to meet with a 'woo woo woo woo' (stereotypical Indian war cry) — Right? ... because he said Indian American.
That shocked the audience and word got to the Democratic National Committee. The Democratic chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) was pissed. Matter of fact, it may hurt Sanchez in fundraising during her primary battle against Harris.
After a dodging a few cameras, Sanchez eventually apologized for her comments.
Sanchez represents Santa Ana towards Anaheim. Her district is considered moderate at best. She is a conservative Democrat and a long time fixture in California. She and her sister Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) have both represented California for years.
Sanchez made slip ups before, but this one managed to catch the junk food media and conservative agitator's attention.
